Alabama's Free Fishing Day Scheduled for
June 9, 2018
Each calendar year, the Commissioner of Conservation and Natural Resources designates a "Free Fishing Day" for the public to fish recreationally in public waters without a fishing license. Saturday, June 9, 2018, is designated as Free Fishing Day.
There is an exemption of the usual fishing license requirement on that day. Some lakes may still require fees and permits, and owner’s permission is required to fish private ponds.
National Fishing and Boating Week is June 2-10, 2018.
